Context: At the Sierra Club, we believe in the power of togetherness. Together, we remain committed to the fight for a healthy climate built on a foundation of environmental, racial, economic, and gender justice – a future where all people benefit from a healthy, thriving planet and a direct connection to nature. As the climate crisis and deeply entrenched systemic racism all fuel inequity, we will continue to fight for a bold, transformational agenda that recognizes the interconnectedness between our planet, our humanity, and our democracy. By recognizing that our destinies are tied, we continue to name that all things are fundamentally connected, and the overlap between ecology, race, gender, and representative government will move to either advance our collective humanity or to oppress it.
Sierra Club is comprised of staff across the country and a network of local chapters that support our grassroots engagement. We are also proud to be a unionized employer, with two labor unions representing more than half of our employees.
The Utah Chapter of the Sierra Club is committed to supporting environmental and social justice efforts throughout the state. We work with our powerful volunteer base and over 35,000 members and supporters to advance solutions to protect water, air, land, and public health.
The Chapter works with the Our Wild America (OWA) campaign to achieve protecting 30% of US lands and water by 2030 by centering and partnering with Tribal Nations, frontline and local communities, and prioritizing lands critical to climate solutions that provide connected wildlands and waters where wildlife, plants, and people thrive. They will advance our efforts to protect lands and waters in Utah by way of holding industry accountable and eliminating new, wasteful, and pollutive leasing on public lands; advancing strategies to secure the future of the Great Salt Lake (GSL), and strategically engaging in work to secure protections for lands in the state.
